How to complete Dragon Quest Builders 2 Tablet Targets

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Tablet Targets will earn you new tools, here's how to complete them.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Tablet Targets are like little building challenges to keep life on the Isle of Awakening a little more fun. Completing Tablet Targets will unlock and upgrade special tools to help you with more building, like the coveted Transform-O-Trowel. There are Tablet Targets for each of the main areas of the Isle of Awakening, unlocked when you return from the story mission islands. We'll go through them and let you know how to complete all Dragon Quest Builders 2 Tablet Targets as we find them. Let's get building!

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Tablet Targets rewards

When you complete enough Tablet Targets, the Hairy Hermit will bestow upon you a brand new tool to help you build, or upgrade one of your current tools to be more helpful.

  • 5 Tablet Targets complete: Transform-O-Trowel – Allows you to replace blocks with the one you are holding.
  • 15 Tablet Targets complete: Transform-O-Trowel upgrade – Allows you to place a large number of blocks of the one you are holding.
  • 20 Tablet Targets complete: Magic Pencil – Creates a blueprint of a favorite creation from your own or someone else's island, if you're playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 multiplayer.
  • 30 Tablet Targets complete: Chisel – Allows you to chisel full blocks into half-block slopes.
  • 45 Tablet Targets complete: Bottomless Pot upgrade – Adds different modes like the ability to scoop up lava, and "Shallow Mode" to give you more control when filling areas with water.
  • 60 Tablet Targets complete: Buildnoculars – We do not currently know what this does. Probably lets you build from further away, like you can in first-person mode. Might be a sort of creative-mode style ability to place blocks anywhere.

Each of the main areas has a selection of Tablet Targets to complete. Some of them don't reveal themselves until you have completed other Tablet Targets. Here are the ones for the first area you unlock upon returning to the Isle of Awakening.
